3 Daesh/ISIS terror suspects nabbed while trying to enter Turkey
Terrorists caught while trying to illegally cross over from Syria, says National Defense Ministry
Three Daesh/ISIS terror suspects were arrested while trying to illegally enter Turkey from Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.
The suspects were caught in the Reyhanli district of Turkey’s southern Hatay province, the ministry said on Twitter.
In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist organization.
The country has since been attacked by the terror group multiple times, with over 300 people killed and hundreds more injured in at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb attacks, and four armed assaults.
In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
